26 My Brother Rides my Pulsar 220 from Bangalore to Gurgaon..!!

My brother and his friend ride my bike from Bangalore to Delhi-Gurgaon..

That's the photo of my brother (younger by a few years, taller by a few inches) who rode all the way from Bangalore to Delhi-Gurgaon for around 2500 Kms just to bring down my bike to me..!! God Bless Him..!! (I was in Gurgaon for the last 3 months without my bike)

Posted below are a few pics taken by his friend who accompanied him on this Road Trip..



Chilling out in Goa..!!



He crossed the states of Karnataka - Maharashtra - Gujrat - Rajasthan and finally made it to the National Capital Region (NCR) on 2'nd April.

This was my bro's itinerary:

  • 27'th May: Departure from Bangalore in the Evening

  • 28'th & 29'th May: Soaking up the Goa Sun

  • 30'th May: Pune

  • 31'st May: Surat

  • 1'st March: Ajmer

  • 2'nd March: Gurgaon


Last year my brother and another of his friend actually drove a Maruti-Suzuki Swift all the way from Bangalore to Jorhat (Our hometown in Assam).

He says that given an opportunity, he wouldn't mind going to foreign countries on a roadtrip. Phew..!!


The bike (Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi), did not give even a single problem during the entire trip. My brother and his friend even covered a strech of 800 Kms in a single day, at speeds around 100 Kmph, with just a few 10-15 minutes breaks..!!




Apart from the slightly loose steering head, the bike has taken the abuse of such a long trip quite well. There are absolutely no rattles or loose parts. But after such a long trip the bike deserves a much needed service as I could feel that the engine had become a bit rough and the performance has gone down slightly. The gearshits also had become a bit hard. An engine oil change and cleaning of its (by now definitely clogged with dust) air filter is much needed.

A trip to the Probiking Service Center tomorrow should bring back the bike to its former glory.


After that I am planning for a "Delhi-Jaipur-Delhi" Road Trip this weekend with a few College friends of mine..!!

"Open Roads, here I come.. Again..!!"

Happy riding Payeng and one more thing,didn't you have any problem shifting from an RX100 to a P220 all of a sudden.

Payeng said...

@Anil Kumar,

The Yamaha RX100 (with my brother right now in Bangalore) was my second bike.

My first bike was a 1999 Hero Honda CBZ. Was dissappointed by the bike, sold it in 2002.

Payeng said...

@Ce$ar,

As far as I know, you can use the vehicle without NOC for upto 3 months in a any state in India. If not, it would have been impossible to travel across states in India.


@Everyone..

thanks I'll pass on your congratulatory messages to my brother.


@Road-Yo..

In most cases I have seen that the younger ones are taller.

Hi Payeng
i m from U.P.
I would like to know about about the on road price of The New Pulsar 220cc of 2009 year.

Payeng said...

Hi Saurabh,

the new 2009 Edition Pulsar 220 hasn't been launched so far.. so can't tell about the price.

so far the 2009 Edition Pulsar 150 and Pulsar 180 has been lauched though.. according to me the 2009 Pulsar 220 launch can be expected in a few weeks.

Saurabh said...

Its really nice to watch Indians developing interest rather love for biking:) ours is a group which is into track racing and hardcore touring, Sprockets - motivatin' sport called biking....

Somnath Ghosh said...

It's awesome that Indians are getting interested in bike rather than cars. Because many young generation means Rich father child love to ride in cars due to more comfort.
Basically i am from kolkata due to my business i have to travel 300 km up & same kms back to home in a week. so i like to travel in bike rather than in my car.I love to ride because "No Bike No Life"
